Because Christmas is coming I have been making more of the simple cosmetic bags. No surprises for friends and family on Xmas day this year! These are relatively quick to make – especially as I have made a few of them now. They are also easy to customise and embellish so most have additional lace or ribbon or bows on them. That’s not to say that no mistakes are made – I managed to break a needle while sewing this evening – I think it hit the metal at the end of the zip, that I had forgotten to remove. A charity shop find this afternoon has been unpicked and cut up a little in readiness for another non xmas project and in the same spirit I finished an enormous holdall earlier.
